Salvia semiatrata - Pine Mountain Sage

Salvia semiatrata is a perfect plant for those who like colors that vibrate. This electric plant grows well in full sun and requires only a little water to get established. Salvia semiatrata is best used where it can be seen from close to mid-range to get the full shock of the colors. It blooms almost year round. No weather that we have experienced has damaged this hardy soul. If fault can be found, Salvia semiatrata is that this sage is brittle, so it should be set out of the way of dogs, kids and balls. Salvia semiatrata is a good addition to the hummingbird garden as well as the butterfly garden.
